Is watching animated cartoons allowed?

If the cartoon has an animated scene of kissing, can I watch it? Should my kids be allowed to watch cartoons? I know that making images is haraam in islam (90% of people don't follow that) but I also heard that videos are allowed, since they are stored in electromagnetic form. Is that correct?


You are right, general ruling is not to draw or take picture of living beings. But in case of animated film, it is allowed if it is being in specific Islamic limits. As you said kissing scenes are there, so that's definitely a NO. Animations should not have any sort of nudity, mixing girls and boys openly or music in it. other than that it is allowed.
